Preserving Strawberries Three Ways
Thursday, June 11, 2015
6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Cornell Cooperative Extension
480 North Main Street
Canandaigua, NY 14424
Strawberry season is just around the corner meaning we don’t have to buy tasteless strawberries from the store anymore but can indulge in juicy, fragrant local ones. Since local strawberry season is so short, it makes sense to preserve them to be enjoyed at a later date. Imagine spreading your toast with homemade jam made from local strawberries during a February snowstorm!
Local Foods educator, Hope Galens will walk you through the steps as she demonstrates both a cooked and freezer jam. She will address what to do if your jam turns out runny or too thick. Hope will discuss freezing strawberries, whole, sliced and mashed. Participants will get to taste the different products. Tips and recipes will be provided from a simple strawberry topping to a refreshing smoothie to a decadent dessert.
Pre-registration is required by June 9, 2015.
